The Tinkermans bails go a - flying
An unfeasibly nice day greeted the assembled hordes for this Saturday fixture. After presenting Ex Captain Ben with his award for batting excellence 2006 (one down from Best Batsman), Vice Elvis lost the toss and we were out to field. This proved to be a game were Salix were totally in the ascendancy in the first two Overs and the Taveners in the ascendancy for the remaining 33. I shall explain.

The very first ball from Mr Myring caught their opener unaware and he spooned a sitter to the Fumbler. Who duly clasped it. Then the next two batsmen pretty much stayed around the whole innings getting 114 and 88, both falling to stumpings from Mikey Mikes bowling. Despite Gingers valiant 7--1-32-2 the target at tea of 255 looked a touch steep.However, on opening the first two Tavs overs went for 20 and this of course was bang on the run rate. Sadly however Bison played over a straight one, the next 8 Overs saw us add only 2 an over and it was downhill from there. Only 4 Salixites managed double figures and it was only a spirted rear guard from the Smutmiester and our elder Statesman that saw us struggle over the ton.

As ever a great day out, super Chilli in the White Hart in that village for ever made famous in rhyming slang for a bad attack of the Farmers (book now! Wear whites!) and it was onwards and upwards as the leaves fall and the weather gets hotter.
